(ORDO NEWS) — Some time ago, scientists conducted another study and received very interesting results. As it was possible to establish, the presence of the COVID-19 virus in the body may be indicated by hiccups, which have been present for a long time.
This condition was not previously attributed to the number of main symptoms, but due to the rapid spread of the pandemic, experts nevertheless decided to turn their attention to this.
For example, in a 64-year-old patient, COVID-19 had absolutely no symptoms other than hiccups. This was stated by doctors from Egypt. The man went to the hospital only three days later. After the examination, the specialists found that the man was infected with SARS-CoV-2.
The exact same case was recorded in America. A patient came to the hospital, whose hiccups did not go away for four days. During this time, the infection managed to get into the lungs, and the level of not only leukocytes, but also platelets in the blood significantly decreased.
Doctors added that hiccups, as a sign of coronavirus, are extremely rare, but its appearance must be paid attention to. Hiccups caused by stress or poor diet go away very quickly. If the condition does not go away for more than a day, then it is better to immediately go to the hospital.
